COVID-19 UPDATE: COVID-19 is having a tremendous impact on the world as we know it. Major events at the local, state and national level have been cancelled. Schools and Universities across our region are extending their Spring Breaks and closing. In support of the local, state and federal efforts to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution, Duval Lodge is suspending our stated communications, degree practices and service projects until further notice. We will advise you when we will resume Lodge events. The safety of our Brothers and their families is my top priority and we, as a fraternal family, need to do our part to help prevent the spread of this virus. This suspension is done with a heavy heart but with the well being of all our families in mind. I urge you all to use the greatest caution in your public contact in the coming days and to remain safe and healthy.

— W⸫ Darrell M. Cleveland
